i do not know the reason why it is so difficult for almost everybody to install and configure this formalms. i have been on it for the past 5 days now trying to install and configure the software but all i could get is error upon error. i have tried different methods to get it done but the problem still persist.
i think something should be done on it because i am tired of all these.
please someone should help.
This is not the matter of incompetency, the installation and configure process is not well detailed.
where to place the config.php file downloaded is not actually explained.
i was asked to used php version 7.0 that php version 7.3 is not supported but i finally used php7.3.8 and now working.
i think there should be improvement in some reply given.
in a nul shell, i have installed and configure it properly without error.
In addition, just as franco might be exaggerating by saying "almost everybody" (there is no way of knowing this for sure), alfa24 might also be making an exaggeration by saying "thousands of times without problems" ("thousands" is a very relative figure and we will never know whether these installations went smoothly or not). Many others may have solved their problem(s) on their own and refrained from sharing their experience here.
but a couple of quick thoughts came to me reading this posting...
1. people commenting on problems / errors should define these in their first posting if wanting advice
2. replies unhelpful seem unfortunate to me
Also, well commented hakangur
I hope I am not out of order with my comment.
Ok, we just added a note to the install procedure, step 4: https://docs.formalms.org/reference-gui ... ade-2.html
Requirements are described in the official documentation: https://docs.formalms.org/reference-gui ... ments.html
PHP versions higher than 7.0 are not fully supported, you might encounter issue in some points of the application
Agreed, and if you wish to help port Forma across to PHP 8.0 to make use of JIT then please volunteer!
I'm working to rebuild Forma via Laravel, in order that we get a robust framework and futureproof it to some extent. This may take up to a year as I need to continue my day job to pay my mortgage...
